We are at the specialized company that repairs helicopters of the state and civil aviation.
Its history started in January, 1942. From the very beginning it was intended to repair aircrafts and their engines but in 1977 it was fully reoriented to repair Mi-24 helicopters. Since then they have repaired more than 1200 helicopters Mi-8, Mi-14, Mi-17, Ka-27, Ka-29, Ka-32.
Mi-24P meets us at the entrance.
The hangars where assembly takes place.
Inside one of them are about ten units of equipment.
This is the shop where they repair, test and assemble components and systems.
It’s a helicopter screw.
Here they make rubber items.
This is a fuel tank of the helicopter.
And this is a special bath for testing it.
Then we come to the test shop.
It reads “hydraulic system”.
It reads “turbine hall”.
It’s an aircraft armament repair place.
“Check if the stopper is reliably closed”.
And yes, it’s not abandoned this time.
